Liverpool are clearly building for the future with their signings this summer, with Elliott following another teenage prospect in Dutch defender Sepp van den Berg as joining the Merseyside giants in this transfer window.

Klopp is yet to bring in a more established name, though in fairness his LFC side don’t look in particularly urgent need of one after their success last season.

Elliott has already played for Fulham at Premier League level, becoming the youngest player in the history of the division.
